It will ultimately go down as a huge failure, not only for its collapse before the end of their inaugural season but for their complete unpreparedness for the league’s suspension.But not all is lost. For eight weeks, AAF players got a chance to showcase their skills for NFL scouts that were undoubtedly monitoring their play, looking for diamonds in the rough and potential depth pieces for the 2019 season. This offseason, Detroit Lions openly admitted they’ll be scouting the league. And while the Lions will build primarily through the draft at this point in the offseason, there are AAF players they should look into bringing in for camp. With the AAF suspended, player contracts are null and these athletes could be signed to any team at any time. Here are five AAF players the Lions should consider signing.TE Bug Howard A former North Carolina tight end, so what could really go wrong? Howard went undrafted in 2017, despite following in Eric Ebron’s footsteps in an extremely productive manner. His senior year at North Carolina saw 53 catches for 827 yards and eight touchdowns. In the NFL, Howard failed to stick on a roster, jumping from the Colts to the Browns to the Panthers. He never saw a regular season snap, but flashed a little in the preseason.In the AAF Austin Bryant Detroit Lions Jersey , Howard was third among all tight ends with 220 receiving yards. Playing mostly as an in-line tight end, Howard could be a short-yardage option for the Lions offense. He’s built to be a blocker too—at 6-foot-5, 228 pounds—but his form could use some refinement.LB Shaheed Salmon The Lions have a pretty big need for off-ball linebacker depth, and while Salmon probably wouldn’t push for playing time right away, he could certainly make a play for a spot on the roster or practice squad.Salmon saw his role with the Iron slowly increase as the season went on. He barely played in the first five weeks of the season, but in the final three, he was essentially a starter—and a brilliant one at that. In those three games, he picked up 11 tackles, one pass breakup, and PFF credited him with seven run stops. In Detroit, he could make a play for Jarrad Davis’ backup, and at just 23 years old (later this month), he still has room to grow. The biggest obstacle for Salmon is his steep developmental curve. Coming from Samford University, he’s got plenty of learning to do, but his flash of potential at the end of the AAF year may be enough for someone to give him a chance. WR Rashad Ross(UPDATE: Ross has signed with the Carolina Panthers)Ross is going to find an NFL team. It’s inevitable. The No. 2 all-time leading receiver in the AAF Austin Bryant Jersey 2019 , this wouldn’t be his first foray into the NFL. In fact, back in December of 2016, Ross had a stint on the Lions practice squad that lasted about a week. He’s been on seven other NFL teams since entering the league in 2013. Though he’s 29 years old, Ross proved to be a men among boys in the AAF. His value for the Lions isn’t just as receiver depth, though. Ross is also a proven kick returner, something the Lions roster is currently lacking. In 2015 with Washington, Ross returned 28 kickoffs for an average of 24.4 yards per return, including a 101-yard touchdown return. Ross would add crazy speed to a Lions receiving corps that doesn’t really have any. He reportedly ran a 4.36 40-yard dash at his Pro Day. He’s worth another shot. EDGE Damontre Moore The former 2013 third-round pick was a draft season favorite of mine, but he thoroughly busted in the NFL, with unsuccessful stints for the Giants, Dolphins, Seahawks and more. But he has absolutely thrived in the AAF: 9.0 sacks, two forced fumbles, and 18 quarterback hits according to PFF. It’s safe to say Moore was the biggest disrupting force of any AAF defense:(Hi, Alex Barrett!)Though not a perfect fit in the Lions defense Austin Bryant Jersey Mens , Moore could certainly provide some depth behind new addition Trey Flowers, and in a pinch could play on the other side at Devon Kennard’s edge position.QB Garrett GilbertThe AAF was filled with some shaky quarterback play, but the Orlando Apollo’s passer was the only one who stood out in a good way. Gilbert finished the AAF season completing 157 of 259 passes (60.6%) for 2152 yards (8.3 Y/A), 13 TDs and 3 INTs. The Lions need some help at the backup quarterback position, and Gilbert is a name they’re a little familiar with. He spent a couple months on the Patriots’ practice squad back in 2014 (while current Lions GM Bob Quinn was there) and after he was waived by the team in 2015, the Lions scooped him up. He ended up being cut by Detroit after training camp, but now that Gilbert has refined his game a little bit, it may be the right time for Detroit to bring him back. There’s an awful lot of smoke around the Lions’ 8th overall pick being up for sale."Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn hasn’t exactly been the wheeling-and-dealing type in the NFL Draft over his three years on the job. In his first ever draft, he didn’t make a single trade despite having ten picks in 2016. The next year, Quinn only made a single trade, moving down in the third round to pick up a fourth rounder. Last season, Quinn was at his busiest. He not only traded up in the second round, but he traded back into the fourth round using 2019 draft assets.Despite a relative sparse history of trading in the draft, expectations are high that the Lions will be active during draft weekend this year. With Quinn openly saying his team is open for business to move down in the first round, and rumors about dealing with the Atlanta Falcons still burning hot Womens Teez Tabor Jersey , USA Today lists the Lions as one of the top five teams most likely to trade their pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. And author Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz has an idea of how they may do it.“Finding a team antsy enough to leap ahead of the Broncos at No. 10 to grab a passer could be the key to Quinn’s vision materializing,” he wrote.With so much smokescreening going on at this time of year, it’s hard to imagine all of these rumors are true. However, there has been an awfully large amount of smoke around Detroit and their desire to trade down this year. Could all these rumors actually materialize on draft day? Tori Petry of DetroitLions.com has a nice recap of what Lions players were up to this offseason prior to reporting for offseason training on Monday. Speaking of offseason training, the Lions shared a photo album of players arriving for work on Monday. Some notable players in the photos were newly-added Justin Coleman, Trey Flowers, and Rashaan Melvin. There were no pictures of Matthew Stafford, and the team declined to comment on whether he attended (remember: his wife has a brain tumor and could be getting surgery this week.)In case you were wondering, the 2019 Snacks’ Snacks Madness tournament has crowned its champion. Congratulations to the rightful winner, Oatmeal Creme Pies: Read it if you dare: Nate Atkins breaks down the film and specs of Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson, a potential first-round pick for the Detroit Lions. Now that the players are together again, it’s time for some serious trash talking. Quandre Diggs was the first to land a haymaker: If you read one thing today, it should be this: Chris Burke of The Athletic traveled alongside Lions head coach Matt Patricia to Alabama, where Patricia was asked to speak about killing bad football. It’s rare we get an in-depth piece on Patricia like this and Burke does a fantastic job.
